A two-storey building has collapsed in the Bode area of Ibadan, capital of Oyo state, leaving many of its occupants trapped.
A resident disclosed this to TheCable late Friday, saying the incident happened around 5:50pm.
Sympathisers are currently at the scene, making efforts to rescue victims before the arrival of government officials.
Men of the fire service who arrived the scene were said to be helpless as they have no equipment to rescue victims.
Some of the victims reportedly called friends and relatives via telephone.
Bode is after Molete bridge in one of the largest cities in West Africa.
The incident comes exactly 48 hours after a three-storey building collapsed in the Ita-Faaji area of Lagos Island, killing at least 12 persons, including nine children
